    December 24, 2019 - Drank out of a Magnum for XMas Raclette. Nice melange of nuts, some peaches and honey. Graciously aged and providing what is expected. Full bodied with good acidity and cookie dough palate feel. Better than some other older white hermitages I had before.

    March 31, 2019 - At Lalimes in Berkeley and served blind to Walter, Michael and Charles. Gold in color. Citrus and wet white gravel on the nose. In the mouth, I Get cantaloupe, pear, lemon peel, some minerals and apricot pit. Lively with a bit of acidity. Went nicely with my seafood soup. Walter and Michael guess 2009-2010 white northern Rhone. Not bad.

    November 11, 2018 - Note: I use a scale on which 85 represents a very good wine.

    Not quite as impressive as the bottle I had four years a go, but still very good. Smooth, but not flabby. Not quite as rich in the mouth as before.

    Probably time to drink up.
